Is Romney Turning Into A Political Rocky?
I am sensing something VERY EXCITING happening in the primary campaign. First let me start off by stating that my favorite scene in the original Rocky movie was when Apollo Creed is relaxing, apparently unaware of a scene on the TV news in his room showing Rocky Balboa furiously boxing away at slabs of meat. Only one member of Apollo's crew sees that news clip and appears somewhat concerned but not Apollo. For him, the upcoming fight with Rocky will be a breeze. Folks, the same thing is happening right now. John McCain is arrogantly assuming that Super Tuesday is a done deal for him. What he (and the MSM) is not noticing is that Mitt Romney is strenuously working to overturn that presumed result. Perhaps like that worried member of Apollo Creed's team, someone in the McCain camp might be noticing that Romney just won a huge VICTORY in the Maine caucuses on Saturday with 52% against McCain's mere 21%. In fact, this was the most heavly attended caucus event in Maine since 1980. Apparently Republican voters have been turned off by McCain's demeanor of an ungracious shmuck.
Like Rocky Balboa, Mitt Romney could well fluster the expectations of the MSM as well as the smug politicians who endorsed McCain such as Ahnold and the smoothly tanned Governor Crist of Florida. So if Republican voters, as has happened on Saturday in Maine, demonstrate their disapproval of the overbearing McCain, it could well result in a poltical miracle this Tuesday. Oh, and if anybody can find a video clip of Rocky punching meat on the TV news while Apollo Creed is completely unaware of the challenge ahead, please send it to me.
Meanwhile enjoy this Rocky training clip whose theme music could well be adopted by the Romney campaign should this Tuesday's election results counter the liberal conventional wisdom.
